PHOENIX — Just like last year, this year saw a whole host of unexpected changes, but at least one thing has stayed the same: Liam and Emma have remained the most popular baby names in Arizona.

According to the Arizona Department of Health Services, Liam and Emma have taken the top spots for the most popular boy and girl names for the second year in a row.

This came one year after the names knocked Sophia and Noah – which held the top spots for five and two years, respectively – down the list.

This year, Noah fell to No. 2, while Sophia fell to No. 4 on the list.

However, the official count of the year’s top baby names will be verified and posted online in February, the department said.
